Riverlife, a nonprofit committed to improving the city's riverfronts, is investing more than $2 million in design and engineering to create accessible walkways leading to the historic West End Bridge.

The project aims to connect neighborhoods in the West End and North Side to each other and to Pittsburgh's riverfronts. This project is a collaborative effort between the City of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), Allegheny County Sanitary Authority (ALCOSAN), and other partners, supported by the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County's Trail Development Fund. Riverlife has partnered with architects El Dorado and a multidisciplinary team of experts for this transformational project. The team needs your input to make it a success!


The West End Bridge is the first crossing over the Ohio River just downstream from the City of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The bridge is the western-most portion of a 15-mile loop of trails and open spaces around Pittsburgh’s downtown. This key effort is part of a larger project which aims to connect the West End and Manchester communities to each other, the waterfront and the City of Pittsburgh.
